My 8 year old son has become my trainer

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

My son has decided that he is going to help me lose weight and get fit.
Today he had me doing 40 leg lifts each leg, 30 squat jumps, 20 jumping jacks, 10 goose jumps, 20 push ups and 20 sit ups. emoticon

I feel like he is trying to kill me! emoticon
I am glad that he loves his mother enough to try and help.

    Sounds like he wants his Mommy to be healthy....along with getting back at you for all of those little swats you have given him LOL. No I am sure he knows that it is good for you. My daughter has been encouraging me to walk and I am glad she has becuase I hate to walk by myself.

    I do not have any kids of my own. But I know if I did, I would always have a trainer and motivator. Many people I know tell me that their kids are the reason they lose weight and exercise more and are on top of their fitness and nutrition program. Not all of them have a son/daughter that is proactively helping like your son is; but I say, whatever works, go for it. It may hurt now, but by the end of June, you won’t recognize yourself.

    Keep up the great work…and hug your son for helping to motivate you.

    that just is one of the sweetest things i've heard in a long time. be glad that he's not younger and making you do like a bazillion or at least several hundred of each. sounds like he has a good grasp on the right amounts for you. i'd keep using this trainer , he sounds pretty good.
